    The resource name is not stored in the PictureBox

    A way is to use the Tag property, that you set with the name of the resource when you assign the image to the PictureBox
    Then you will be able to test pictureBoxDED3.Tag

    I think that it will work if you define some members (maybe static) like this:

    static readonly Image Breaker_Open = SCADA.Properties.Resources.Breaker_Open;
    private void SomeFunction( )
       if( pictureBoxDED3.Image == Breaker_Open )
             . . .
